Click below to listen to my Garden Bite radio show:  Drought tolerant plants

Not that we NEED them right now, however, as we head into the “dog days” of summer, we will!!  90 some degrees will do that!

Characterisitics of a drought tolerant plant:

  • fuzzy leaves – fine little hairs capture water
  • gray leaves – their light color reflects sunlight
  • large fleshy roots – below ground storage units
  • succulent leaves – above ground storage units
